    $629 can't beat it for the price: https://www.rythmikaudio.com/L12.html

    You fellas and your categorical statements, jeez...

    it depends on your goals. Home theater or creating a more club-like atmosphere? This is much better for a few bucks more:

    I will kindly disagree that a ported non-servo sub is "much better" - especially if the intended application is for any kind of music listening whatsoever.

    For strictly HT? Mayyyybe, but I'd still rather give my money to Rythmik than Monoprice.

    If home theater is your main (or only goal), there's just no contest. That tiny servo sub just isn't going to accomplish your goals. But absolutely, if you have dedicated two channel or even a dual purpose rig (like most of mine have been), then of course it gets more complicated...

    :( It's not "tiny"... :neutral:

    But yeah, good point. If your only concern is how low it can go and how much SPL it can put out then yeah get the Monoprice.

    I think we can both agree though that the Rythmik L12 would absolutely eat the PSW 250 for breakfast hahah.

    True on both counts! And dude, of course, I have sealed subs for my two-channel rig. If I could convince the CFO and interior decorator, I would love two L12s in the two-channel rig. But when I want to watch a movie and have a theater experience? I go into the theater and get bounced around and slammed in the chest 👌

    Yes, svs lowered the price for entry for quality bass.

    I had their base model... It cost me 600 or so shipped and man it could straight pound. Wasn't the fastest or most musical but true subsonic bass at 600 dollars was unheard of then

    The article that appeared in Audio Magazine started on page 28:

    https://www.worldradiohistory.com/Archive-All-Audio/Archive-Audio/90s/Audio-1996-05.pdf

    The marketing department, at Polk, put together packets of information (including floppy disc!) giving a person information to build a great sounding subwoofer.

    I am extremely intrigued at this. The "Deep bass design" using two 8" drivers seems to have remarkably similar characteristics to the RT3000p subwoofers.

    If you can find a mirage BPS-150i in good condition for $200ish, you might check it out: two 8 inch drivers in a bi-polar configuration. One of the faster, tightest, musical subs I’ve ever owned. And it couldn’t rather the couch it it did dig into the low 20s hz range…
